Fund Formation

Shibolet’s prominent, long-established fund formation practice has accumulated a wealth of knowledge of the Israeli VC fund industry. We advise fund management teams and partners regarding all aspects of fund formation and also represent parties investing in such funds. Furthermore, the practice provides legal counsel to major foreign VC and private equity funds seeking to establish a presence in Israel, and regularly acts on behalf of foreign private equity and VC funds regarding investments in Israeli technology and other companies. Over the years, our clients have included international and domestic fund management companies, strategic investors, banking and financial institutions, insurance companies, as well as other institutional investors, family offices, and HNWIs.

Our practical experience, coupled with our insight into the various aspects of the fund formation process, grants us a broad perspective related to the venture capital ecosystem and current market trends/practices, as well as a comparative overview of funds operating in the same or similar arenas. This invaluable knowledge enables us to advise clients and offer guidance on all fund-related legal matters, including organizational and tax structure, fund terms, domestic and cross-border fundraising, negotiations with investors, and so forth.
